Default Slag's Wood cutting Jig Saw

It's for wood, but it's also built of walnut wood, so I thought some would find it interesting.

Jig or Scroll saw made of walnut
Crank rod, crank rod bearings and most of the frame is walnut
Crank is from a 3 hp engine, I don't know the make.

I think this is about 18 years old.

The rod and crank, and notice how the bearing caps on both the rod and crank are walnut.

This shows the crank and rod and bearing a little better.
Also the makers name and city/ state are engraved.

Works just fine, although I'm not much into woodworking anymore, it found a home here with me.

Price was good,.....Free.....being it was nearly going to be homeless, I thought it was interesting, good workmanship, I'd give it a good place to live.

Also.....I got this brace and some bits for the brace as well...also for free.

Enjoy!

Excellant show of goodies Slag. That saw is a winner by all standards of craftsmanship. Slick, very slick.

I can't imagine anyone allowing something like this to go homeless. That would have been a pure shame.

Nice additions.

Very nice Slag,
I've always had a fondness for jigsaws. I guess because, that's the first machine my Dad ever let me use when I was a kid. I do a little woodworking but, I'm much more partial to the silvery cold stuff ( or rusty, with my budget). I see you also got a burring reamer with those bits. They're handy for removing the burrs from tubing and pipe.

I almost let ol' Roy Underhill talk me into building one of those a few years ago, Slag.
Thank God I decided to take a nap instead 'cause I don't have any more room for any more tools I don't use any more.
But mine would have been treadle-powered.

very interesting, i like seeing what people come up with for machines when built at home. my father made a power hack saw when he was a teen and when him and his brother parted ways from the farm it somehow wound up in the scrap pile. a real shame too, i would love to have it now, not so much to use it but just to have it arround because he built it.


EDIT-almost forgot.....you suck!

This is a good example of some A-hole saying "that'll never work wooden bearing caps". I happen to think that is beautiful. Nice save. And You Suck.
